MSA 7th Annual Conference
“Communities & Change”

Extended Deadline for submissions: October 17, 2022

The MSA Seventh Annual Conference is getting closer! Submit your paper on the theme of “Communities and Change” now, and join us in Newcastle, UK, from July 3–7, 2023.

You can read the full Call for Papers and the submission guidelines here. Please note that you will have to create a new account to submit your paper. We recommend that you use the same log-in details as for the MSA homepage.

Proposals are invited for panels, roundtable discussions, creative workshops and individual papers from members who are committed to attending the conference in person. The MSA especially encourages complete sessions. Each panel should, in principle, consist of 4 presenters and a chair. Each roundtable should consist of around 4-5 participants with shorter statements and discussions. Each participant may appear as a presenter only once (in either a panel or a roundtable) but can act as chair in more than one panel.

We also welcome proposals for special events such as film screenings, performances, exhibitions, etc., to be part of the Cultural Programme. Anyone who wishes to submit a proposal for a creative session is asked to contact the organisers to discuss the proposal and any specific requirements prior to submission.

The final deadline for submissions will be Monday 17 October 2022.

We aim to inform people of the outcome of their submission in mid-December. We aim to provide at the same time the necessary supporting documentation for those needing to apply for visas.

Unfortunately, we do not have the financial or physical capacity to run a hybrid conference, but we will be recording and livestreaming the keynote and plenary sessions to make these as accessible as possible. We realise that this will be very disappointing to many, but the costs of a hybrid conference are prohibitive and would place an insurmountable financial burden on the Association and its members. We will continue to look for creative solutions to try to make a very small number of panels hybrid, but we must prioritise in-person submissions at this stage.

Please send any enquiries to, and any general questions regarding the Memory Studies Association or MSA membership to
